Light me up! New Kitchen Lighting...

Remember a couple months ago when we had our kitchen backsplash installed and I said lighting was next? (Yeah, I know, it was a while ago!) Well, the lighting is in!

We bought some very chic, modern, pendant lighting from Lamps Plus and had installed by the Mr.'s best friend in Oregon when he came to town to visit us last month.

And here's how they look!


It took me a long time to find the right pendant lights for our modern kitchen. So many pendant lights are too shabby chic, ornamented, or gothic. I paid more than I wanted to for the lights, but it was worth it. Since they are chrome they go really well with all of stainless steel appliances and chrome fixtures.

They are the perfect mood lighting for our kitchen and are so much prettier than the stock, florescent, recessed lighting.

I really feel like the pendant lights add a touch of class to our kitchen. And the soft lighting makes me happier to be in the kitchen at night!

What have you done to your kitchen to make it a place that you want to be?

Love it! The thing I love most about my kitchen is the big island. EVERYONE congregates in the kitchen (read: near the food and drink) so it is nice to have the island.
